“Absolutely, it’s one of the features that we’re most proud of, every uniform that we create for the Women’s National team is composed of 18 bottles of recycled polyester, it’s almost amazing, almost entirely made of recycled polyester, it just blows my mind and the girls have been so excited about that feature.”

STORY: Alex Morgan, Sydney Leroux and Tobin Heath from the U.S. Women’s National team turned out Wednesday (April 22) for a preview of the home kit that the team will be wearing during the Women’s World Cup in Canada.

“This launch has been fantastic and Nike has done a great job kind of reinventing our kits, reinventing this World Cup, we’re able to come out in a completely different look, but a look that we can be proud of,” said midfielder Tobin Heath.

The home kit manufactured by Nike includes white jerseys and shorts with black piping and logos, a far cry from uniforms of the past that draw on the red, white and blue of the U.S. flag. There is a fleeting nod to the flag, though, as the jersey contain a triangular pennant design with 13 white stars, referring to the original U.S. colonies. As for the cleats, here’s the description from a U.S. Soccer written statement: “The cleats combine flashes of volt yellow with a striking ‘Blue Lagoon’ color, a not to the famous lakes of 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup host nation Canada.”

Each piece of the home kit was constructed with polyester from recycled plastic bottles.

The U.S. Women’s National team is not only ready to represent the U.S. in the World Cup, but also hopeful that this summer will mark a new era in the sport.

“Our success in the World Cup will do nothing but help the development of women’s soccer in the U.S. and just the continuation of the league that we have here and the fans that we draw,” said Forward, Alex Morgan.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 runs from June 6 to July 5.
